Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a cheap DJ?

To find a cheap or affordable DJ for your party or wedding, search for local DJs near you and ask for free cost estimates from several of them. While some DJ profiles may provide an automatically generated starting cost, it’s important to contact the DJ to get an idea of how much your particular request will cost. This also gives you the opportunity to ask them other important questions and make sure you are a good fit.

How do you book a DJ for a party?

To book a party DJ, start by comparing local pros in your area. Check out their ratings and reviews to find out: 

  • Are they professional?
  • Do they show up on time to set up for the party?
  • Do they know how to feel the energy in the room and adjust the music accordingly?
  • Are they friendly to guests and take song requests?
  • Do they specialize in the genres you want (pop, Top 40, hip-hop, etc.)?
  • Do they have experience playing at your type of event (weddings, birthday parties, etc.)?

Whenever possible, watch videos of their performances. 

Your last step is to contact three to five different DJs near you to ask them questions and get price quotes.

How much is a DJ?

When you hire a local DJ, expect to pay roughly between $300 and $800. But be aware that the actual price will vary based on several factors, including the length of the DJ’s set and how much of a presence they need to be. Larger venues can drive up the cost, as this requires more equipment, soundchecking and setup. Adding extras like confetti, fog, light shows and black lights also adds to the cost.

How much are wedding DJs?

Hiring a DJ typically costs anywhere from $300 to $1,200. It all depends on how long they’ll be working at your wedding and other various factors. The cost to hire a wedding DJ is usually higher than the cost to hire a DJ to play at a birthday party or similar event. 

To find out exactly how much your wedding DJ will cost, ask for a cost estimate from several professionals in your area.

What questions should you ask wedding DJs?

To ensure you hire the best DJ for your wedding, ask these questions:

  • Are you available on my wedding date?
  • How much do you charge, and how do you set your prices?
  • What’s included in your rate (e.g., set up, clean up, etc.)?
  • How many weddings have you played at?
  • Do you have any references I can contact?
  • What kind of music do you specialize in?
  • Do you provide your own equipment, sound system, speakers, etc.?
  • Do you provide any other services (e.g., photo booth, lighting, etc.)?
  • Can guests request songs?
  • Will you accept a “Do Not Play” list?
  • How early would you arrive at the venue to set up?
  • Do you take breaks throughout the event? If so, how many and for how long?

Why do DJs ask how many guests are at the wedding?

It’s helpful to let your DJ know how many guests will be attending the wedding so they can ensure they have the right sound system and equipment. They may also ask more questions about your guests so they can ensure they have music that caters to the crowd. 

Reviews for Chambersburg djs

We hired DJ Romes to provide music for our wedding ceremony and reception. We were fully satisfied with his services. He arrived early, paid attention to detail, kept the events of the evening running smoothly and kept guests in the loop. This is an excellent DJ for the most excellent of prices.

We recently had Kenn DJ my son's 16th birthday party. All aspects of our experience were fantastic!!! He was very open to everything we wanted and was able to play my son's entire, rather extensive, playlist. He answered all my questions promptly and since I had never hired a DJ before I had quite a few! The guests all had a great time and were all telling him at school the following Monday how much fun it was! I would recommend Kenn Speaks for your next event!

Although I didn't get to experience his DJ talents. His handling of the unforeseen cancelling of my event was not professional. I understood the contract and would always honor it the constant emails and texts till the $125 balance was paid was bordering on harassment. Due to this reason I would not recommend him!

Ken was great! He was professional and extremely entertaining. Everyone enjoyed having him as our DJ and he was amazingly patient with us. We ran a little over on time, but people still wanted to do more Karaoke songs, and Ken was great about it. His pricing is extremely competitive and a steal considering the high level of quality that we received.

Brian was a perfect DJ and MC! I was impressed by him from the beginning when I hired him for this job. Brian was extremely attentive to details and did a lot of prepararion to ensure that everything went well. And believe me, it went WAY BETTER than well. I couldn't be more pleased and do not have a single complaint. I would recommend his services without hesitation.
